 Shekhar Kammula: I was shooting Love Story at a terrace near my house when the news of lockdown broke out

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the entire world to a standstill. The whole world was in a lockdown for about two months. There are a few people, who have helped the frontline workers to fight this pandemic. One of them is popular director Shekhar Kammula. The Happy Days filmmaker has been supplying refreshments and daily needs to many frontline workers since the lockdown. He said that he came to know about the lockdown when he was shooting Love Story at a terrace near his home in Padmarao Nagar of Hyderabad.

 
Speaking in an interview with the Times of India, Shekhar stated that he has begun the last schedule of Love Story when the lockdown got announced. The decision came in as a shock for the team. But after seeing the troubles of others, Shekhar felt that his problem was irrelevant. Shekhar stays nearby the Gandhi Hospital, which is now dedicated to treating the coronavirus patients. Every day, Shekhar used to see GHMC workers, health workers, and sanitization departments working at the hospital. Looking at their hard work, people in the neighborhood used to offer them water and other refreshments. That is when Shekhar decided to extend his support as well.
 
The director says that while we are staying at home, the frontline workers are risking their lives to curb the virus. He stated that we can't thank them enough. Shekhar is continuing his services for the last two months.
